PORTLAND — Good Theater is staging the recent Broadway success "Good People," by David Lindsay-Abaire, through Nov. 4 at the St. Lawrence Arts Center.
"Good People" is set in South Boston where this week’s paycheck goes to cover last week’s bills. When she loses her job at the Dollar Store, Margie seeks out an old boyfriend for help. The differences between the haves and the have-nots is explored with humor as Margie, desperate for work, does whatever it takes to land a position.
"Good People" debuted on Broadway in February 2011. The show was nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Play. It was also nominated as Best Play for the Drama League, the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama Desk. The play won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
